More About Training Trial Staff

An efficient, well-trained trial team can be the deciding factor in the success or failure of a trial. The team itself will be decided by the needs of each trial, but in general it should include a Trial Manager, Statistician, Programmer, Data Manager and Clerks, Administrative Staff, Research Nurses and other trial specific staff, examples include Health Economists and Ethicists. All staff involved in trial activities should be trained in Good Clinical Practice (GCP). Alongside appropriate GCP training, trial staff should be given adequate training in procedures specific to the trial; data collection through use of an electronic case report form for example, as well as in regulations specific to the centre; approvals processes for example. Training should be sufficient to ensure the trial is run consistently throughout multiple centres.
